Sarri gives injury update ahead of Cardiff clash

Chelsea will be aiming to maintain their impressive 100% start to the Premier League season when they welcome Neil Warnock’s newly promoted Cardiff to Stamford Bridge tomorrow afternoon.

Ahead of tomorrow’s fixture Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has confirmed that several of his first-team squad are suffering with minor injuries or sickness issues.

’The best news is that Fabregas is now very well,’ Sarri told Chelsea’s official website.

‘He has been training with the team during the week, so now he only has to improve his physical condition.

‘In a few days, one week, he will be ready to play. At the moment Fabregas is able to be on the bench. I want to speak to him. Maybe it’s better for him to have two days of training.

‘Yesterday there were some problems with a fever and sore throat for Emerson and Zappacosta, and a little problem after the match with the national team for Loftus-Cheek, with the right tibia.

‘I don’t know today the situation because I have to speak with the doctor. I don’t know if he’ll be able to play tomorrow. I have to see the last training session.’
